SalamAlaykum brothers and sister May Allah accept our condolences for the Family of Muhammad pbuh Specially the Family of Imam Hussain (a.s) I was reading a Book called The Event of Taff, The Earliest Historical Account of the Tragedy of Karbala by Abu Mikhnaf Apparently this is the earliest account of the Event of Karbala. Now here is the catch, there are two books with the same title (Maqtal Al Hussain) which are attributed to Abu Mikhnaf. The earliest one being more authentic than the later one. The later one has appeared out of nowhere and has additions in the event of Karbala and is rejected by our Scholars. In the book I was reading this under the Subtitle 'The Great Errors of this Maqtal' talking about the later version of the Maqtal of Abu Mikhnaf and it read this following from point 11 11. Again he is the only one to have repeated three times the report of the night and the day of ‘Ashura’. He mentions in the first the speech of al-Husayn (as) and the [martyrdom] of his brother, ‘Abbas (as)! He is alone in saying that: “… [‘Abbas] then held the sword with his mouth.” He then says: “[Al-Husayn] came to him and carried him on the back of his horse and took him to the tents. He put [his body] there and bitterly wept over him such that everyone present with him began weeping.” --------------- Now in the earliest version of the same Maqtal it mentions this on page 147. Pdf version from Al-islam.org ......When [the foot soldiers from among the] companions of Nafi’ drew near him, he [told them]: “Fill your waterskins!” So they forced their way and filled their waterskins. [Seeing this] ‘Amru bin al-Hajjaj and his companions rushed towards them, but ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali and Nafi’ bin Hilal attacked them and stopped them [from reaching the foot soldiers]. Then both of them went to the foot soldiers and told them: “[You] move [ahead]” while they were protecting them. [In the meanwhile,] ‘Amru bin al-Hajjaj and his army came back and chased them for a while. The companions of al-Husayn (as) managed to return to him with the waterskins. According to Abu Mikhnaf Abbas Ibn Ali (a.s) did not die losing his arms when trying to get water from the river of Furat but actually during battle Under the subheading 'The Martyrdom of ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali (as) and His Brothers' ‘Abbas bin ‘Ali (as) then said to his brothers on his mother’s side -‘Abdullah, Ja’far and ‘Uthman: “O sons of my mother! Go forward [and fight] so that I may mourn over you; for you have no children [to grieve over you]! They did so [and went out and fought a severe battle until] they were killed. [May Allah have mercy on them].11,12 My question would be, is the account where Abbas Ibn Ali (a.s) gets his arms cut off by the enemy authentic? And if yes, what is the source since the later version mentions this event but the first version which is the more authentic one. I would really appreciate your insight into this
